The date on the drive is "August 07" So that makes it just about 7
The replacement drive is a "Liteon 20L DL DVD" !! I'll have to take
it out again to check its data. I was in too much of a hurry to swap
drives I forgot to write it down.
Ok I give up! I did a burn of the SuSE 10.3 Live CD and it failed to
verify. So I tried to burn the install DVD with the same result.
I'm out of time for today.
